News, thoughts, and ramblings from the minds behind Memphis Made Brewing Co.
After a little time off, we're happy to say that Hopped is coming back.
This hoppy beer festival will be Saturday, May 14 from noon to 10 p.m.
We'll have a bunch of new hoppy beers released during the festival, as our brewers have been working hard on some new offereings as well as some old hoppy favorites.
We're also giving away a Hopped glass to the first 100 customers.
There are also going to be limited edition Hopped shirts and merchandise available, celebrating that most noble plant of plants which gives us so much flavor and joy in this life.
There will be music from Church Brothers to provide a soundtrack for the day.
Gourmade and Soi #9 will be on site with their food trucks so that you can enjoy something to eat without missing any of the beer or music.
We'll end the day with a show by the Comma Comedians.
It's free admission all day, so come by and get your hoppy beer fix with us.
Memphis Made has partnered with the Memphis Botanic Garden on a series of beers for its latest exhibit.
Alice's Adventures in the Garden starts May 8 and runs through October 31.
The outdoors exhibit features larger-than-life Alice in Wonderland sculptures made of mosaiculture, the horticultural art of creating giant topiary-like sculptures using thousands of annual bedding plants to carpet steel armature forms.
There are sculptures ranging from The Red Queen to The Chesire Cat to Alice herself.
We worked with Memphis Botanic Garden on beers for the exhibit, running the range from new beers to old favorites.
The first two beers are Red Queen and Cheshire Cat Nap. After that, we'll release Down the Rabbit Hole, followed by new beers through the exhibit's run.
Make sure to stop by the Memphis Botanic Garden to enjoy the sculptures and to see what we've brewed next.

The weather is slowly starting to heat up again, so we're bringing in more of our spring beers.
Next up is Dockside, a refreshing wheat ale that will get you thinking of warmer days.
Here's what you need to know:
This smooth wheat ale with late addition hops is a springtime beer for warmer weather.
Its light color and medium body is perfect for coming out of hibernation into the sunshine.
Dockside contains hints of lemon and orange from the mandarina bavaria hops and the smooth wheat malt, making this the go-to beer for spring. When the temperature swells, it's time to get Dockside.
Prince Mango is back, just in time for spring.
It's going to start getting warm soon and to help everyone celebrate, we're brought back Prince Mango, a limited release India Pale Ale that everyone loved last year.
This time, it's a seaonal beer so you'll be enjoy it for a while.
We've also canned it this year, so you can look for it around Shelby County wherever good beer is sold.
Here a description to get you in the mood:
The space prince has returned! This Zambodian IPA is adorned with traditional flavors and aromas of frickle pear, pink zorbel berries, and overripe glorbos.
Flavors like this can only come from unearthly sources, or maybe it's the addition of way too much hops and real mango. It's fruit forward, hoppy and delicious.
You'll feel its hazy effects as it takes you to another world and back.
You can now enjoy a wide variety of Memphis Made Brewing Co. beer while you wait for your flight at Memphis International Airport.
We worked with HMS Host to develop a Memphis Made restaurant and taproom in the airport’s newly renovated Terminal B.
The new space has seven taps of Memphis Made with year-rounds Cat Nap, Fireside, Fruit Snacks, and Junt, as well as seasonal and limited release beers. They also serve canned beer, wine, spirits, and cocktails.
The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, with salads, burgers, and sandwiches (including a pulled pork sandwich).
It also features televisions, plenty of phone charging stations, and multiple seating areas, from bar stools to Adirondack chairs overlooking the runways. There is even an homage to the I Love Memphis mural at our Cooper-Young taproom.
Next time you’re flying through Memphis International Airport, come by and enjoy a pint or two!
